Sochi, Russia - Russias Adelina Sotnikova won womens figure skating gold at the Sochi Olympics, edging South Koreas Kim Yuna for the title on Thursday night. Roosevelt Nix Jersey . Sotnikova trailed the 2010 Olympic champion by just .28 points after the short program on Wednesday, but had a brilliant free skate on Thursday. She earned a top score of 149.95 for a two-day total of 224.59. Kim, skating last on Thursday, earned a free skate score of 144.19 for a total of 219.11 to claim a silver medal. She was trying to become the first womens figure skater to win consecutive Olympic gold medals since Katarina Witt in 1984 and 1988. Italys Carolina Kostner placed third to earn a bronze medal in her third Olympics. She was ninth in the 2006 Games and 16th four years ago in Vancouver. Jordan Berry Jersey . Noah finished with 13 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists in 34 minutes. He was headed for his fourth triple-double of the season, but sat down with about three minutes left because of the lopsided score. Kirk Hinrich scored 19 points for Chicago, going 5 for 6 on 3-pointers, Carlos Boozer added 18 points, D. Jack Lambert Jersey . -- Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman is undergoing surgery to repair a broken bone above his left eye but has no other serious injuries after being hit in the face by a line drive in a spring training game.DW: You are of course the younger brother of NFL Hall of Famer Marcus Allen – did the two of you ever get to play together on a team, whether it was in peewee or high school or whatever?DA: No, we never got a chance to play together because hes three years older than me, and so the closest we got to play with each other was on the street playing street ball against other neighbourhoods. We lived on Weston Drive, and Weston Drive was a force to be reckoned with growing up as kids. But we didnt get to play professionally because he played in the NFL, and I came to the Canadian Football League and we pretty much stayed in our leagues and divisions, so we never got a chance to play. We always desired to play with each other if I had of been in the National Football League.   #53179647 / gettyimages.com DW: You played your entire career in the CFL, but when a player like Doug Flutie returned to the NFL and had success, did you consider giving the NFL a shot?DA: Well, I did consider it but I think the number a major reason why I came to the Canadian Football League was because Warren Moon was my hero growing up, and knowing that my size was always a factor when I came out of college at Cal State Fullerton, scouts were always wondering and questioning if I could handle the physicality of the National Football League because I was only around 61” and 150 something pounds coming into the professional ranks my first year in Edmonton. Now I was an athletic quarterback, and I dont think they were prepared for someone who could run and throw in that era because if you werent 64” and 220 pounds, and a pocket passer you werent going to play quarterback in the National Football League in that era in the 80s.(Image courtesy of AJ Sports World)DW: Your were in attendance at the Raptors game a few weeks ago – are you a big Raptors fan, and what do you think of the success theyve been having?DA: Im a huge sports fan in general, but I do enjoy going to National Basketball League games, the Raptors are doing an outstanding job. The way theyve slowly built their team, and I think the biggest change this year is that their bench is much deeper, and I think those guys understand their roles and I think all the great basketball players on their team are playing very well. I mean, the latest loss is even due to one of their starters going down. But theyre a sound basketball team that plays hard and I enjoy watching them play.

I think the one thing I do like about golf is throughout my whole life Ive always been around team sports, and I think golf is somewhat individual, even though when you look at the structure of golf, the individuals do have teams around them that make sure they stay on top of their game. Even golf is starting to be more of a team sport because you have a fitness specialist, and philosophy person, a psychology expert, everything, trainers, and so golfers are much more prepared and its not just them versus the course. But that is the one aspect I like about golf, when it comes down to just you challenging the course, or challenging your foursome or the individual youre playing with.   #1665009962 / gettyimages. Daniel McCullers Jersey. com DW: A few hockey questions for you now – are you a big hockey fan?DA: Im a big hockey fan! I started my career off in Edmonton and I was able to see a few Stanley Cups in Edmonton and get to know [Wayne] Gretzky and [Mark] Messier and all those guys during that era. I came from a city of champions, so that was my first introduction to hockey, and I think every since that Ive really enjoyed the game and I have great friends around the NHL. I try to go to some games, and see the good teams when they come to town. Im a good friend with P.K. Subban and Kevin Weekes and yeah, I do always have a great time at hockey games.DW: I was actually going to ask who your favourite player is… I guess you might say P.K. Subban?DA: Oh ya, new generation Im a big fan of P.K. Subban, Sidney Crosby, [Alexander] Ovechkin… I like individual players, not necessarily the teams they play for. I like the skillset these young guys have; its amazing.DW: Did you play at all as a kid?DA: No, not as a kid. I actually wish I had continued on my learning process when I was in Edmonton, I started off playing early in my career but I let it go once I went to Vancouver with the B.C. Lions. I regret not keeping up with the sport, I can still skate, but I wish I could play hockey well.DW: You were drafted by the Detroit Tigers, is that correct?DA: Yes, I am a baseball player, body wise and all those things, so most people actually thought I was going to be a baseball player. I grew up playing two sports all the way through college; I won a National Championship in the College World Series, and was also playing football at the same time. For me sports were always about participating in the game, and when I came out of college I was a middle reliever spot starter so there was time when you didnt play because your starter would go six or seven innings. There were times in college where you would sit around waiting to be called upon, and you dont get called. In football, I was the starting quarterback so the participation aspect was so crucial to me in my decision-making on what sport I wanted to play. I just didnt know I was going to be playing 23 years of football, thats all.(Image courtesy of Bring Back Titan Football)DW: So tell us a little about the Jack Daniels Holiday Barrel Tree event and the charity its supporting…DA: Im excited about supporting a charitable event, especially when it talks about giving back, and understanding the nature of the Jack Daniels Holiday Barrel Tree thats going to be lit in support of Dr. Jay Charitable foundation of care that helps families and children facing terminal illnesses, its just making their lives easier. I think I have a heart for giving, and giving back, especially when it comes to young kids, whether they have an illness or whether they want an opportunity to play sports. I just have a heart for it. The great thing about the tree is it will be up all the way until December 27th. It will be down their on King Street West, and my good friend Mike “Pinball” Clemons is here. Everyone should see this tree made out of barrels.DW: Yeah, it sounds really cool.DA: I think everyone whos downtown between now and the 27th should come by and see the tree. Its that time of the season where we all think about giving to others and giving back, and like I said I have a heart for it and Im looking forward to it.Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale Nike Baseball Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys China Wholesale NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Authentic Cheap NHL Jerseys Canada Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys Cheap Soccer Jerseys ChinaNCAA Jerseys Cheap Nike NHL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Store Cheap Football Jerseys Store Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Jerseys NCAA ChinaJerseys NFL Cheap Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys ' ' '
